Webinar by Alberta Biodiversity Monitoring Institute (ABMI)

Is it possible to have too much of a good thing? We were faced with this question as we began deploying 1000 trail cameras and 1000 autonomous recording units (ARUs) around Alberta every field season. How do you handle, and get the most out of, the terabytes and terabytes of data produced by these sensors?

The solution for us has been the development of WildTrax, a new initiative that has just gone live. WildTrax is an online platform for storing, managing, processing, and sharing environmental sensor data. Users can upload their data, take advantage of sophisticated AI-based automatic processing tools to classify observations, and discover new data or share their own. They can do all this themselves, or contract the WildTrax team to do it for them.

What does all this mean for you? After many rounds of testing with pilot users, WildTrax is being released publicly, and is available at www.wildtrax.ca. We plan to keep improving the platform too! We’re already working on developing a data discovery map, a citizen science version of the platform that will let anyone help ‘crowd source’ data processing, and increasing the range of data privacy options. Sign up and try it out! We think you’ll love it, and if not, we welcome your feedback as we add new functions. Read more about WildTrax on our blog, or watch the introductory video, or join the webinar on November the 27th.
